    I decided to make this a winter/Christmas Challenge. I'm giving you a while before the challenge starts, as it starts on November 1st. You can feel free to stop at Christmas if you want to, but I will be carrying the challenge on into January (As, I was born in January and want to look slightly.. or even more than slightly slimmer by then). You can choose wether you weight yourself once every week (Like I will be doing, and letting you know by the end of it how well I did) or just when you decide to. Christmas is a hard time for me (Like, it probably is for alot of you's) as I eat, and can't really tell myself to stop.

    This challenge (up until the end of january) will run for 13 weeks! So, what is your goal?

    I'm in!

    I was thinking of starting a diary and stuff on Nov 1st anyway, and was waiting for a November challenge to start, so this will be perfect. I'll keep going until late February, though, since that's my target 'deadline.'

    Thought I'd weigh-in on the day this 'officially' started -- down to 86kg. By my reckoning that's about a 2.2lb loss.

    Time to invest in some digital scales, though, or this could prove mighty difficult to keep track of. Anyone have a good set they swear by? :)

    I have still yet to find a good set of digital scales, finding it pretty hard to keep track using the ones I have.. though my bathroom is being done up.. so I will have to make sure to add digital scales to my 'want' list.
